The length of the pipe needed to run the exhaust to the sides is longer than what is needed to mount the same to the roof in case of trucks. I just did take a peak at the exhaust system of a truck a few days back.

Bottom line, roof mounting of exhausts for trucks is achievable.

This picture shows vertical mounted muffler which would take up more space. IF the muffler was left under the truck and just the pipe going up, then it would be more space efficient.

I think a simple heat sheild as seen on motorcycle exhausts should suffice. (along with a "Caution HOT" warning label).

In the picture I have posted, the bus exuast is completly inisde the body.

before we even think of buses modifying their exhausts , cv modifying their exhausts .. I would like to point out that most of the 2 wheelers manufacturerd in India do not have a rubber mat at the rear wheel . when ever a motorcyclists goes over a patch of wet road , automatically whoever is following , his /her dress is bound to get ruined . I have noticed it in most of the vehicles .

Err...I guess you intended to say full fender; even if someone gives carbon fibre mats at free of cost to fit on my rear fender, I wouldn't do that. What I mean by full fender in the rear is here

Attachment 328074
Will the Exhaust facing the side of the driver's window wont be a problem.Imagine a situation wherein the driver starts the vehicle keeping his window down, and wind is blowing sideways, I am pretty much sure that initial thick black smoke will creep into the cabin.

Was it that difficult to point it upwards or to the back of cabin? Or I am missing something?

Pointing it upwards needs some suitable mesh / check valve to prevent rain water from falling in to the pipe, I guess.

Back of the cabin should be possible, IMO.
